While TPW has two new excellent posts up by Subir (please read them and make comments!), I’m creating an open thread.
Bernie slammed Trump on his budget proposal this afternoon and had the ranking Budget member from Congress, John Yarmuth, join him in the presser. Spoiler warning: the Minority leaders also give remarks but they are the last two.
Sanders highlighted the tax savings the wealthiest Americans will see and the cuts to welfare programs.
“This is a budget that says if you are a member of the Trump family, you will get a tax break of up to $4 billion, but if you are a child of a working class family, you could well lose the health insurance you currently have,” Sanders said. “This budget makes a bad situation worse — in terms of healthcare.”
“This is a budget that is immoral, and will cause an immense amount of pain,” he added.
More about that and your news in the comments section. We’ll see you there!
